According to state media, the leaders of the communist party in China have passed a resolution by President Xi Jinping.
It discusses the history and achievements of the party, which celebrates its centenary this year. It is the third resolution in communist history.
The resolution was seen as the main point of a meeting of some 400 key party members, who elect a new leader every five years. They have been consulting behind closed doors in Beijing since Monday. The resolution’s adoption is seen as a reinforcement of Xi’s authority before he is expected to be awarded a third term next year.
Xi is considered the most influential president since Mao Zedong, the founder of the People’s Republic of China. Previously, resolutions were only passed by Mao and Deng Xiaoping in 1945 and 1981. Deng is described as the architect of modern China.
Following Mao and Deng, educational institutions have also been teaching Xi’s ideas since this school year.
